I'm Back For More x 3













I've been meaning to post these three great versions of I'm Back For More for a while but for some reason I haven't. All of them are beautiful songs but I'll always have a soft spot for the original by Leo's Sunshipp. The sound of it is really warm and mellow but inevitably grooving.

Al Johnson's version that opens up his album Back For More is probably the best known out of these three. It's a great duet with smooth vocals by Jean Carn and Al Johnson. Last but not least is a solid cut from Marlena Shaw's album Acting Up. When you have Marlena Shaw on the vocals it's pretty hard to go wrong.

If you're interested in learning more about Kenny Stover, the underrated writer of this masterpiece, peep this article on Groove Collector. BTW, I fixed the dead link of an earlier post featuring Leo's Sunshipp's classic cut Give Me The Sunshine. Check it out if you're not familiar with that masterpiece.

I've heard both the leo's sunship & al johnson version but never connected them. Two great tracks with two different moods.

And a great flip of Leo's Sunship's version was included on this EP http://www.discogs.com/Various-Firecracker-EP-03/release/1015874 from a couple of years back. Linkwood Family - Piece Of Mind. Really tight.
